Stanage offers a European perspective of Barack Obama's extraordinary rise from humble beginnings to become one of the most charismatic figures in American political history. Obama's presidential candidacy drew immense levels of international interest, as the civilized world longed for relief from the Bush reign. The political background to Obama's campaign, as well as his nail-biting contest with Hillary Clinton and battle with John McCain are described from the intimacy of an impartial eye-witness who followed the Democratic race at every turn and across the span of the States. Redemption Song is loaded with unpublished interviews and insights from both camps.
